Introduction of charges

We are aware that our Recycling Centres are valued by residents, however like many local authorities; we have to make difficult financial decisions due to significant cuts from central government.

We are required by law to provide a Household Waste and Recycling Centre service and ours is one of the most efficient in the country.

We do not, however, have to provide a disposal service for rubble and plasterboard so, like with many other councils we have decided to charge a small amount for this service to help fund our services.
